APCO Stresses Importance of NG-911 Deployment

The Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials-International today stressed the importance of implementing next-generation 911 (NG-911) services. In a blog posting noting that Feb. 16, 2018, will mark the 50th anniversary of the first 911 call, APCO President Martha Carter said “that the 50th anniversary should also be a call to action.  We need to modernize our 9-1-1 systems, and prepare 9-1-1 professionals to meet the challenges of these new technologies.  The gulf between the current status of 9-1-1, and today’s state-of-the art commercially available communications, is so vast that it requires action by Congress to provide the funding needed to close this gap.”
